Book Description

GI is only half the picture – it’s the load that counts. GL, or Glycaemic Loading, is the newest diet revolution – it is simpler than low GI and more effective, too. Start today and watch the pounds melt away – and stay away. With this fantastic new plan you can love food and not feel guilty!

Kick-start your new life to a slimmer and fitter you with The 7-Day GL Diet. Glycaemic Loading is the smart way to permanent weight loss as it allows you to balance your blood sugar levels by mixing and matching carbs. You will have many more food choices than you do on other diets (like low GI), and even better, there’s no faddy calorie-counting, weighing or measuring. Weight loss couldn’t be simpler!

The 7-Day GL Diet includes:
• What GL is and why it is better than GI
• More-choice food lists – check out which 'banned' foods are back on the menu
• Three 7-day plans to suit your individual lifestyle – ‘Fast and Friendly' (if time and convenience are key), 'Veggie Friendly’ (for time-pushed vegetarians) and 'Foodie Friendly' (for more leisurely gourmets).
• Simple and delicious recipes, clear menu plans, quick-reference shopping lists

5.0 out of 5 stars Home at last 3 Jan 2006
Before the '7 Day Diet' I was already on the wagon with the first Nigel Denby GL diet book, which has changed my life. Just like my mother and sister, without being clinically either diabetic or hypothyroid, I have always been supersensitive to certain kinds of refined carbohydrates but never knew why ... until Nigel and the Team stepped in!
The new book is a refinement of, and revised approach to, the first book, with even more delicious recipes. This is a real foodie diet (as delicious as Ruth Watson's excellent 'Fat Girl Slim').
The system is easy to manage, there is no tedious weighing or point-counting, and it is based on good fresh unprocessed food. It can easily work around family life (and believe me, with one post-stroke diet and one obsessive eating-disorders candidate to cater for, I need that!).
I am now losing slowly but steadily and actually enjoying being a DietFreedom Fighter rather than a dieter.
The other great advantage (am I allowed to mention it here?) is the community on their website [...] where I have been a member since last May. Not only is it a terrific mutually supportive community, but Nigel and the team stay in regular touch and incorporate our recipes, behavioural hints and all sorts into their work, plus responding with their own professional wisdom. Not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget the diet! This is a gem. 11 Mar 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Forget the diet. Buy this book for the recipes.
In fact, buy it just for the Nutty Seedy Bread recipe, you won't regret it. Of course, while you eat that, you can browse through the other recipes, and there'll be lots you want to try. Chilli, lime and ginger chicken, for example. Chunky bean and bacon soup.
Prawns with mucho-spicy dip; though I wouldn't really call it spicy, it has fresh ginger, garlic, dill, mustard and worcester sauce. I would call it delicious, though. Warm French Bean Salad, with chili, soy sauce and sesame seeds.
Mouth watering yet?
I've already bought the peanuts for the Spicy Peanut Chicken (this is dipped in ground peanuts and baked, and not the Indonesian style chicken with peanut sauce.) Plus the ingredients for the chickpea and pepper salad.
Best of all, the recipes are so easy and take so little time and effort. Except the nutty seedy bread, which needs the wholewheat cycle on the bread machine, and it really is a pity to wait so long to eat it.

I have tried most diets, I think! Most were a total failure even after a promising start; others were almost over before they began because of the major lifestyle change that had to occur. The GL Diet is not like that – it was very easy to understand, and with a few comparatively minor adjustments I started to lose weight steadily. The GL fits with my very hectic lifestyle and I certainly have much more energy for my 4am starts at the flower market (I work for a florist)! I even have enough energy to continue throughout the day and into evening client meetings too. I've lost 2st 4lb in just nine months and am now at my ‘longed for’ target weight, and stay here pretty effortlessly.

5.0 out of 5 stars On a par with Patrick Holford 1 Mar 2006
Everyone should buy this book and Patrick Holford GL Books, these books have changed my wife from a moody, depressed , carb monster in a normal pleasant human being in less than a month .
Unable to lose weight with slimming clubs , low fat or low cholesterol diets from the doctor, she has now lost 5lb in 3 weeks .Wish we had done this sooner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accesssible, delicious, and oh! so effective 23 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought the first book by Denby et al last autumn (2005). A friend had suggested the Holford Diet to me, and I simply added the other book to my Amazon order on a whim. It has been one of the best random choices I have made.
Holford was interesting, and very knowledgeable - but the Denby book was so easily accessible, and so full of unpretentious but delicious recipes that it made adjusting my eating habits remarkably simple -and, dare I say it, fun!
By combining the recipes with regular exercise I lost two stone in four months - not bad for a middle-aged man who originally weighed over fifteen stone. I succeeded despite many lapses, and without being overstrict.
The most impressive part was that the GL concept dramatically reduced my desire for even the most delicious sweet things and chocolates.
I bought the new book to renew my commitment after lapsing for a month [Christmas, birthday, family visits, trip abroad - all filled with temptation] and have been even more impressed.
Firstly, the layout and style make for easy reading - the font is lovely and clear, the headings unpretentious - all creating a book that is easy to browse through. [Compare this with 'You are what you eat' which is only really accessible to the totally colourblind!]. There are lots of commonsense touches, such as having two indexes, one for recipes the other for general information. The compact size means that this is no coffee-table book, but something which just emerges from the shelf on a daily basis. There are no carefully composed pristine pictures to make one feel inadequate to the task - after the first glance pictures in a recipe book are not all that useful.
There is plenty of theory, but somehow it does not get in the way of the fact that this is will mostly be used as a recipe book.
